By the way, I'm pretty good at responding to comments but I am TERRIBLE at email. It can easily be months before you get an emailed response, comments take two days, usually.
I'm not much for surprises. I just don't get much out of them, usually... I like to anticipate. I'd rather buy tickets for a concert three months in advance and salivate over them for that length of time than have someone give them to me as a surprise the day before. I'd still be excited, but I'd have missed all that delightful anticipation. You'd think I wouldn't be that way, as impatient as I am, but eh, I'm a walking contradiction! I do like mystery though. So telling me in advance that you are going to give me a present but not telling me what it is is a VERY good idea (though I will whine that my curiosity is killing me). Are you an anticipation or surprise type of person?
